The Fear of Failure
Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.” Richard
Branson.
Aside from the books, notebooks, and other school supplies that made my backpack too heavy to
carry every day, I also carry with me determination, perseverance, and patience. I considered
these as formulas I need to succeed in my goal, and that is to finish my studies. Despite being so
focused on my goal and being optimistic in life, I still have fear within me. Fear of failure is
something that every student worries about. What if I cannot make it? What if I will not fulfil the
promise I made to my parents? These are a few of the many questions that linger in my mind.
Failure is possible as obstacles and challenges are there all the time.
As a student, I also struggle in class. Especially on the subjects that I am not good at. It
disappoints me sometimes to see a low score on exams. A fear would start to build in me. I see
this as one of the reasons for my failure in school. Sometimes, I question myself, where did I go
wrong? Is my effort not enough? Even when I double my time to study, still I can't be that good
enough in a certain subject. After all, I continue to work hard on my studies.
The projects and homework that I need to submit on time were also very important for me as a
student. The pressure to finish it on time and to have a passing mark is all I wish. But sometimes,
we cannot avoid the problems along the way. It might be a lack of resources, money, or moral
support from people around you. As a result, projects and homework failed to be submitted.
Because of this, I felt a mix of embarrassment, anxiety, anger, sadness, and shame, to name a
few.
Despite the failures and challenges that I encountered in my studies and my journey as a student,
I realized that I should not give up. I remember the formulas to succeed in my goal to include

determination, perseverance, and patience. When we fail, we should try again and stand up. Even
you start again from where you started is just fine, as long as you have the determination and the
trust in yourself. Every student faces failure in different forms. It could be in their grades or other
extracurricular activities in school. What is important is that despite these circumstances,
students should continue to strive hard.
Lastly, we need to learn from our mistakes and failure. In order to grow, you need failure, it is
life's ultimate lesson. There is value in failure. Through failure, you will get to know yourself
better and you will learn from your mistakes. Failures make us rethink, reconsider, and find new
ways and strategies to achieve our goals.
